A Note From This Side UP! Family Center

We are honored to have been selected as one of only seven area non-profit’s to participate in Liberty Mutual Insurance’s Like My Community Project! And we are THE ONLY NON-PROFIT IN PLANO, TX!

The catch is… we can’t do this without you! In this contest, we are the only NEW, 100% volunteer-based non-profit. It is an honor to be considered in the rank of the other nominees! But since we are new and volunteer-based, in order to WIN we need the support and rallying of people like YOU!

Please help us rally votes for Liberty Mutual’s Like My Community Contest! Help us win MUCH NEEDED funding for This Side UP! Family Center! $30,000, that is!

The local community will determine the 3 winners by voting for the cause they “like” the most on Facebook. People can vote once per day for their favorite causes by visiting the Like My Community Dallas Facebook page at An additional daily vote can be cast by texting “LMDAL1” to 61698.

Liberty Mutual Insurance designed this program to honor the people and organizations that they feel are doing the right thing all over Dallas-Fort Worth. The three winning causes will each receive $30,000!

HELP US BEAT THE ODDS!  As you know, a large percentage of non-profits don’t make it past their first year. We did! Another large percentage don’t make it past their 2nd year either. We’re on the way! WINNING this contest will allow us to beat the odds, but, most of all, heighten family strength in our community!!

Winning this contest will allow us to continue moving forward with our family strengthening Center that provides much-needed Family Connection, Parenting Education, Marriage Enrichment, Single Parent Support and MORE! Our 18 months have been full of wonderful success stories of STRONGER families!

Just to name a few…

  • Marriages have been saved due to our “I Date My Spouse! Program.
  • Our Parent Talk nights have equipped parents to connect with their kids on the level needed for successful character building.
  • Over 20 other non-profits (Big Brothers Big Sisters, Journey of Hope, PISD Student Age Parent Program, Hopes Door Womens Abuse Shelter, Providence Homes and more) have used our Center to deepen their reach and their missions!
  • Our 2nd/4th Saturday Family Connection Nights have allowed hurting, struggling families to connect and grow together and alongside other families in our community.

Please JUMP IN and RALLY with us by spreading the word via Facebook, newsletters, groups, and more. Any group you are in could vote and would TRULY MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Networking groups like Chamber, Rotary etc, church groups, family reunions – EVERY VOTE COUNTS!

We are SO grateful for a wonderful company like Liberty Mutual Insurance who believes in COMMUNITY! And we are thankful to those of you in our community who are supporters of our mission! With your HELP, This Side UP! Family Center can WIN this! And that WIN will mean FAMILY STRENGTH that builds strong FAMILY CONNECTION for generations to come!
